I rode my bike to work today. I cheated a little bit by driving to the mechanic then riding from there, but I still took the strides to ride rather than have someone pick me up and drive me from there.
Riding my bike to work has been a great change of pace for me. Each time I ride I try to challenge myself to ride as hard as I can to beat my best times. I still haven't cracked the 15 minute mark on my way home, but it is definitely possible. It all comes down to getting one traffic light and the amount of traffic on Route 31. If I can time those right I really think I can do it.
I am going to try to ride a few times next week. Its going to be really hot, but I will be ok. I have gotten into a good routine and I don't want to break it. I'm saving gas too! Not that I put too many miles on the car anyway.
One more down!
